What Are the Different Types of Vinyl?

There are several low cost alternatives you can choose from when it comes to flooring. Vinyl flooring, including luxury vinyl flooring, is one of those options and comes in many different styles. Luxury vinyl is the type of flooring that can handle day to day challenges your home presents. Vinyl and luxury vinyl may have some of the same properties, but they are definitely two different types of flooring options.

Sheet Vinyl

Commonly when customers see sheet vinyl, they are reminded of dated kitchen flooring. Things have changed and technology has advanced resulting in sheet vinyl that looks almost just like real hardwood or stone. Sheet vinyl usually comes in 12-foot-wide rolls and leaves virtually no seams. “Natural realism” is a popular visual trend for vinyl sheet flooring, homeowners want to capture the look and feel of stone or hardwood, but also have the easy maintenance of vinyl. Earthscapes is one of our Carpet One exclusive sheet vinyl brands.

WPC Flooring

Wood plastic composite flooring, also known as WPC, is commonly misnamed as water proof core flooring. Both are fitting names because of WPC’s waterproof qualities. These specialty luxury vinyl floors are perfect for your whole home. You can have the traditional look of wood without the maintenance, and it is durable enough to handle commercial spaces. Typically, all WPC products will be considered luxury vinyl tiles or luxury vinyl planks, but not all luxury vinyl is WPC. We have WPC flooring options such as Invincible H2O.
